|Sadayatana 162: The Whisperer - John Tocher|
To this day I do not know why I obeyed those whispers so slavishly, or whether I thought Akeley was mad or sane. After what had gone before, I ought to have been prepared for anything; but this mechanical mummery seemed so like the typical vagaries of crazed inventors and scientists that it struck a chord of doubt which even the preceding discourse had not excited. What the whisperer implied was beyond all human belief—yet were not the other things still farther beyond, and less preposterous o...

|Sadayatana 179: The Wandering Soul - John Tocher|
At night the choppers buzz the bamboo roof of the jungle, dumping from three thousand feet to little more than a hundred, circling, climbing, circling again, no LZ to land in, no casualties to pick up. Above the roar of the rotorwash come the shrieks of the damned: wails, moans, plaintive cries of Vietnamese. It’s real William Castle stuff, weird sounds and screaming meemies, but even knowing it’s coming from a tape recorder, even hearing the static hiss of the loudspeakers mounted on the Hu...

|Sadayatana 140: Fathomless Worlds - John Tocher|
Children will always be afraid of the dark, and men with minds sensitive to hereditary impulse will always tremble at the thought of the hidden and fathomless worlds of strange life which may pulsate in the gulfs beyond the stars, or press hideously upon our own globe in unholy dimensions which only the dead and the moonstruck can glimpse. - --H.

|Sadayatana 036: Chair Squeaking, Slowed Down - John Tocher|
Fun show tonight. Played mostly stuff by C.P. Mcdill who was kind enough to allow me to mix his music. C.P. McDill is the mastermind behind Webbed Hand Records and has several projects/names he goes under. Among them: Saluki Regicide, Djinnestan, Drone Wallah, Tree Helicopter, and Akashic Crow's Nest. Webbed Hand Records gets a lot of play on Sadayatana. Very happy to do a show featuring so much of C.P...

|Sadayatana 150: Pool of Memory - John Tocher|
Some slight haziness there may have been, as if a few dark drops had fallen into the clear pool of memory; certain things had become a little dimmed; but that was all. - Virginia Woolf, Orlando: A Biography (1928) startartisttitle00:00Antropsy vs 1.194 trips to dissociateYour Ocean Is Mine00:41MystifiedFrosted Tundra04:19Grove Of Whispersexperimental (unreleased)12:06Malevolent Alien BeingThe Eye Of God38:31Nagual ArtAdoria44:32Druhá SmrtRecurrent52:28Nagual ArtBedroom Visitors53:12ImmundusGaz...

|Sadayatana 119: Whirlpool of Strangers - John Tocher|
In a corner of the concourse, by the main entrance, there was a small newsstand. The owner, a quiet, courteous old man with an air of breeding, had stood behind his counter for twenty years. He had owned a cigarette factory once, but it had gone bankrupt, and he had resigned himself to the lonely obscurity of his little stand in the midst of an eternal whirlpool of strangers. He had no family or friends left alive...

All the men she's been with and now you, just you, and the barges going by, masts and hulls, the whole damned current of life flowing through you, through her, through all the guys behind you and after you, the flowers and the birds and the sun streaming in and the fragrance of it choking you, annihilating you. - Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer (1934) startartisttitle00:00Peer SaerQuicksand Part VII excerpt04:07Tree HelicopterThe Numbest Station11:30Phil Julianphotic ellipse28:07Stefan Paulussal...

Some tracks from the new Joe Frawley release: "Curious Perspectives". Love his music. Thanks for making it Joe. Excerpt from an unreleased track from Disturbed Earth, Shane Morris, and Kirill Platonkin: "Rolling Stock". Very cool. Play this some more when it comes out. Hopefully on Buddhist on Fire. Hehe.

|Sadayatana 032: My Grandparents House - John Tocher|
Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from archive.org. Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show...

|Sadayatana 054: Woven of Dreams - John Tocher|
Despite the fact that the whole situation was garbed in a wrapping woven of dreams, and wholly at odds with reason, it nonetheless took control of me with a despotic force. My heart became filled with the delights and pains of living in expectation. That whole night I did not sleep a single moment, as my imagination went roaming through the vastness of time that comprised past, present, and future together, drunk with the intoxication that total freedom brings...
